I Prayed have prayed
God of all mercy, we cry out for Canada, land whose motto — “From sea to sea” — is taken from Your word in Psalm 72:8: May he have dominion from sea to sea. … We are pleading for Your mercy instead of judgment, Lord. We cry out for the Canadians: Forgive them, for they know not what they do! Please refresh Your weary inheritance by sending rain — as You have promised: on both the just and the unjust! Amen.

As wildfires rage out of control in Canadian provinces from west to east, the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully in His Body, through whom He is bringing forth unprecedented revival in many areas of the country. The Canadian government, however, seems to be going down a path of provocation. Through such programs as MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying), Canada is murdering the most vulnerable people in society; the government is actively criticizing Israel’s right to democratically determine its own judiciary policies and to defend its territory from terrorists; and it is aggressively pushing the LGBTQ+ agenda, locally and abroad. Given that God has set up His kingdom with an immutable law of sowing and reaping, granting us freedom to choose life over death (see Deuteronomy 30:19) and blessings over curses (see Deuteronomy 28), do we see a nation reaping what it has sown?

The photos used for this article was taken Wednesday afternoon in the northeast United States. This shows just how much the wildfires are impacting America.

We invite you to share in the comments what the Lord is showing you about the fires and their impact. 

From The Wall Street Journal. Millions of Americans in the Midwest and the Northeast were under air-quality alerts Tuesday as smoke moving south from more than 400 active Canadian wildfires cast a pall over the skies and darkened the Manhattan skyline.

Canada’s wildfire season is off to a blistering start this year, with more than 8.1 million acres of land already burned by early June, according to the country’s natural-resources department. …

The fires have sent smoke billowing into the U.S., where residents from the Dakotas to Massachusetts are inhaling smoky air.

The U.S. National Weather Service said millions of people in the eastern half of the country are under air-quality alerts and are being asked to limit outdoor activities.

In New York City, state officials said the air-quality reading Tuesday was 159, an unhealthy number approaching the levels of such cities as Doha, Qatar, and New Delhi.

Smoky haze has become a common experience in Western states including California, where mega wildfires have burned in recent years. But the ash-gray skies and charred smells floating around the nation’s most-populous metropolis — even in the subway tunnels — were unusual. …

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and the state departments of environmental conservation and health issued an air quality health advisory for several regions, including the city and Long Island. …

Officials warned residents to limit strenuous outdoor activity.

“People who are especially sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of pollutants, including the very young and those with pre-existing respiratory problems such as heart disease or asthma, should avoid spending time outdoors, if possible,” said Dr. James McDonald, acting state health commissioner. …

The Canadian wildfires have been raging for weeks from coast to coast. Jonathan Wilkinson, the Canadian natural-resources minister, said this wildfire season could be the most severe in the country’s history if the current trajectory continues. …

Data from Canada suggest half of forest fires are caused by humans, often accidentally, while the other half are ignited by lightning strikes, said Piyush Jain, an adjunct professor at the University of Alberta and a research scientist at the Canadian Forest Service. …

“What’s unusual about this fire season in Canada is you usually either have the West burning, or you have the East burning, or you have one area that is particularly challenging,” he said. “Right now, we have fires occurring across much of the country.” …

Father, we ask for your mercy for Canada and these fires come to an end. I pray that the residents will be safe from the fires and the effects, not only in Canada but the US as well. Thank you Father for answering my prayer in Jesus name, amen.

Father God, I pray for the people of Canada as the Wild Fires spread over the land, sending hazard debris over the East Coast of America. God I listened again at a prophetic word that was spoken March 23, 2022, the words “ a wild fire will be in your news, the smoke will be on the East Coast in the sky’s of America. Prophetic word fulfilled June-2023 I listened to another prophetic word was given again from same Prophetic words Dec.28, 2022, by the same person. God as I listened today to these words I knew that God must have been speaking to us about what is going to happen. 2 Corinthians 4-18 says- “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” God I agree with these words from the words spoken by the prophetic voice. God I also know that Satan is good at distractions, while he wants our minds diverted away from an agenda he is pushing. As I listened again my heart raced as the words from the voice of prophetic message said this was a distraction by the enemy to keep America from the important Indictments of DJT. God help us to understand the why for such destruction as serious as wild fires. Psalms- 75-3” When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm” v.7” It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.” God my mind goes back to the Red Sea and how you saved the Israelites, is this a warning for the Enemies who are trying to destroy America and Get rid of DJT, who God has chosen to serve America. God as I share these scriptures from the prophetic words that were spoken, I feel a leap in my spirit that aligns with these words of Truth. So when I saw the article on IFA, I knew it was time to share what I listened to because the words were fulfilled almost a year earlier. God you are so good to give us warnings so we can prepare for the evilness of the enemy that has caused mass destruction to our America. “ God says:” For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.” Hebrews 10:30 God has used a great number of people as prophets both in Biblical times and beyond, “ Throughout the Bible, God called women as well as men to declare God’s messages.” When people do not listen or know Gods words , He uses prophets to get messages to His Church. God is showing us what He is doing.. God I know that Canada is in control with part of the Radical Left trying to establish the One World Order, I know Gods America with A Christian background is hindering this event. I know God has spoken and wants a great harvest of souls so it is not time for a takeover of Satan and his friends. God is in control and will decide the ultimate time schedule. IFA and it’s many Intercessors has helped to divert this with powerful praying as well as GH 15, Flash Point and many more affiliated organizations. God is going to bring America and other nations back, In Proverbs 12-7 God says “The wicked are overthrown and are no more,
but the house of the righteous stands firm. Our Heavenly Father is very unhappy with the evilness that has entered the borders of this nation as well as other nations. I feel in my spirit and I see the devastation of the Marxist, Communist control that is trying to take over as in the days of Hitler. If you read the Corrine Ten Boom stories, you can see the same principles being applied. God I have asked forgiveness for our taking God out of our schools, out of some churches, removing the Ten Commandments out of our Capitols. The enemy called Satan took a hold of our homes, churches, businesses an inch at a time, leaving the results that we are in. I pray for Canada to find Jesus and make a stand with prayers in Gods words. I call down Gods presence asking Him to send His Warrior Angels to help us in Removal of the deep state control in all states, I believe God is about to show up, so we must keep praying and reading His Covenant promises that will unite us together as One, so we feel His forgiveness and His Love. I do stand on the prophetic words about the fires, smoke and haze that is being shown in pictures over NY. God is doing what He said was going to happen by His warning through the prophetic voice over a year ago. The same warning was more than three times, it is on prophecy fulfilled page exactly as God gave these words. God’s promises to the righteous- “ Isaiah 35:4
New International Version
4 say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
he will come to save you.” This is my prayers for this article.? Based upon Gods words. 🙏

Please send physical rain (without lightning) to put out the fires and wash the ash out of the air.
Please send spiritual fire and rain to bring repentance and revival.
I ask in the name of your precious son, Jesus. AMEN.

Father, we trust that You are in control and the wildfires are being allowed by You. While we may not understand the full backstory of Your will in this matter, we do trust that Your purposes will be accomplished and Your will done. Help the Canadian people to remain safe from the fire and the smoke in the air in both our nations. Bring them to safety and thanksgiving for safety in every fire location.

I am praying against harm for the people, especially for the NE USA. My son who lives in Philadelphia said there was a “chemically smell” in all the smoke, like when tires are burning. That doesn’t sound good at all. He already had a bad cough since these fires began coming to the NE. May the Lord send rain in abundance to quench the fires, and strong winds to blow this smoke towards the oceans, in Jesus’ name. Lord have MERCY I ask on those affected, please do it because of the righteous, protect them, in Your name I ask. Thank You!

As someone who grew up close to the wildfires of Southern Oregon and Northern California I would add that as you pray for rain, add, “without lighting!”

Appreciate your prayers for my collaborator, Tim, and myself as we travel to Chester, NY, today to perform excerpts from Songs of Revival (www.SongsOfRevivalLive.com) for a possible future performance booking. May God superintend the travel and protect bodies, voices, etc., especially in the poor air quality. Pray that God alone would be glorified and the enemy utterly defeated and unable to work chaos into the performance.

“As wildfires rage out of control in Canadian provinces” ….I believe they are under the control of the Creator of Heaven and earth…..

Exodus 15:7 You overthrew Your adversaries by Your great majesty. You unleashed Your burning wrath; it consumed them like stubble.

Hebrews 12:28-29 Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. “For our God is a consuming fire.”

Dear Heavenly Father, Your Word says You are a consuming fire. I pray this is what You are accomplishing in these “wildfires.” As we pray this carnage and destruction is aimed at Canada’s godlessness, may those who have never called out for You do so in their distress. May their response be gratitude with reverence and awe. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Genesis 18:20 Then the Lord said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.
We praise you for giving us a glimpse of what can happen to a nation that turns its back on you, I believe you are doing this for our benefit, to repent and seek your forgiveness as a nation humbily, and as your Eklessia.
Father, I praise you for your heart to save, that none shall perish but repent and be saved. I pray that you are pulling back the veil, tenderizing hearts, and giving Canadians a desire for Godly principles. I pray that you give them eyes to recognize the depravity of their souls and seek Your forgiveness.
I pray all of this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

These fires are a plan of the globalists to block out the sun….to help??? global warming.
It is colder where I live and my plants are not doing so well. I am still wearing winter clothing.
Must turn my heat on in the mornings. Yesterday, I could not see across the lake I live by. I could smell the smoke when I opened my door. Had to stay in. I noticed there are no hummingbirds this year. My bird nest boxes are empty. Usually the Carolina wrens and sparrows fight over them. Have not seen as many birds as usual. This is unhealthy for wildlife as well as humans. We need the sun. They do not need to fly the planes to make poisonous contrails since they can block out the sun with smoke much better. The air we breathe is being affected greatly by all of this…all in the name of global
warming. Is this deliberate?

The US Forest Service is required to apply to Washington DC for permits to clear the underbrush thereby reducing wildfire risk. When environmentalist-captured govt. agencies deny these permits, you end up with accumulated kindling on the ground. This has been California’s problem since the 1990s under Bill Clinton. Maybe it’s Canada’s too.

    I was wondering about arson, and praying this wouldn’t be used as “an emergency excuse” for lockdowns or other power-grab!

Father, you are a mighty, powerful God… a God of great mercy. Bring healing to Canada and to the USA. Protect your people from the fire/smoke. Specifically, I ask you help my sister and the others who are weak breathe as we are getting it in Northern WI too. In Jesus’ name, Amen

YHVH, give us wisdom and knowledge to understand our times, the enemy and his wiles. help us to be vigilant and to stand as watchman on the walls of our cites to sound the alarm and to look to your for our help in times of need. We look to you as we hide under the shadow of your wings.

Canada, YHVH shall have dominion from sea to sea and from the river unto the ends of the earth. Your leaves are for the healing of the nations. Your best days are yet to come.
